TARGET: CHANGE THE LAY-OUT OF THE ITEMS IN A SHEET
1) Open the image (Fig.1). As you can see, there are several items from letter A to M. We would like to print only the items A and G and more than one time.
2) Using the Rectangle Select Tool, select the A item (Fig.2).
3) Copy and paste the selection (CTRL-C and then CTRL-V). You will see a new layer on the Layers Box. (Fig.3)
4) Left Click on that Layer, Right Click on that Layer and Left Click on New Layer (Fig.4).
5) You can do the same with G item. We have now two new Layers. If we want to duplicate those Layers, Left Click on the bottom Duplicate Layer Icon. Duplicate both the new Layers (Fig.5).
6) The two new Layers are exactly one over the other. We need to move them aside. Left Click on the Move Icon (A), Left Click on the Layers you want to move (B and C), Left Click on the eye so that you will not see the former image (D). Now, Left Click on the image and, pressing the arrow keys, move the copied Layers where you want (Fig.6).
7) Do the same for other new Layers, till to have the new image (Fig.7).
8) Now you can Save the new image in Gimp format (.xcf) and then Save as in jpg format (or a different format).
